cyberharassment. the fbi tried to determine if the e-mails with petraeus' account to broadwell had-exchanged through regular e-mail exchanges or had been hawked. fbi agents believe there were no criminal charge to be brought or security implications to the case. this despite that broadwell had some classified information and seemed to be releasing information on the benghazi attack. >> i don't know if a lot of you had heard this, but the c.i.a. had taken a couple of libyan militia members prisoner and they think the attack on the on the the consulate was to get these prisoners back. >> peter king who heads the homeland security committee told nbc he had doubts that the probe ever should have happened. >> i don't know how this rises to the level of an fbi investigation. >> and senator dianne feinstein told nbc she wanted to know why the intelligence committee that she chairs weren't alerted about the ongoing investigations while some were. >> an fbi agent took it upon him to go to members of the house and tell them, and this was outside of the general line of the information. that's
of the fbi, how the fbi could have been investigating it this long, and yet, you know, general petraeus was involved, director petraeus was involved. for me if it was the fbi director had the obligation to tell the president or the national security council at the earliest state so it seems to be going on for severalonths and, yet, now it appears that they're saying that the fbi didn't realize until election day that general petraeus was involved. it just doesn't add up, and you have this type of investigation. the fbi investigating emails, the emails leading to the cia director and taking four months to find out that the cia director was involved. i have real questions about this. i think a timeline has to be looked at and analyzed to see what happened. now, as far as leaving the hole, general petraeus was an outstanding general, outstanding, dedicated public official. he is going to be missed. as i'm sure senator mendez would agree, no one is irreplaceable in government, but he will have at least a short-term impact any time you lose someone like general petraeus's stature, especially
. first of all, i'm wondering -- excuse me -- how something ichlg e-mails went to the level of the fbi, how the fbi could have been investigating it this long, and if general petraeus was involved to me the fbi had an obligation to tell the president or the national security council at the earliest date. so it seems this has been going on for several months and yet now it appears that they're saying that the fbi didn't realize until election day that general petraeus was involved. it just doesn't add up that you have this type of investigation, the fbi investigating e-mails, the e-mails leading to the cia director, and it taking four months to find out that the cia director was involved. so i have real questions about this. i think a timeline has to be looked at and analyzed to see what happened. now, as far as leaving a hole, general petraeus was an outstanding general, outstanding dedicated public official. he's going to be missed. but as i'm sure senator menendez would agree, no one is irreplaceable in government. but it is going to have at least a short-term impact. anytime you los
, that friday afternoon bombshell. david petraeus resigns at the cia after the fbi uncovers his extramarital affair. pierre thomas is here with the latest. first came upon this several months ago. >> yes, it came to light after a woman in tampa tied to military got a peculiar, harassing e-mail. the woman was so concerned, she contacted the fbi, who, then, according to our sources, traced it back to paula broadwell, who wrote a book about petraeus. as the fbi continued to investigate, they discovered e-mails pointing to a romantic, sexual relationship between the two. early concerns about the e-mails being hacked. but the investigation never turned up evidence of national security being compromised. but what did find was lots of human drama. >> what more do they have to investigate now and why wasn't the white house told until this week? >> the fbi investigation is largely done and the early evidence is that there will not be criminal charges. again, sources say that this deinvolved into a personal matter. petraeus had been confronted in the last couple of weeks, as for the timing of the disc
of u.s. and nato forces in afghanistan, general john allen, has also been investigated by the fbi after having exchange, according to a senior defense official, possibly thousands of potentially inappropriate e-mails with jill kelley, the 37-year-old social liaison at the heart of the scandal that led to general petraeus' resignation. house homeland security committee chair peter king had another term to describe the unfolding drama. >> it's really a great tragedy. general petraeus, one of our most distinguished generals and general allen, considered a super star in the military, did an outstanding job in afghanistan, was going to go to nato, it's just tragic. you're right, this has the elements in so ways of a hollywood movie or trashy novel. >> a brief primer on the characters until so-called trashy novel. allen who is married became ensnared in the investigation because of his e-mail correspondent spns with kelley who in may started receiving a series of what she considered to be harassing e-mails from petraeus biographer and fellow west point grad paula broadwell. the ensuing invest
emerging now this weekend about the fbi investigation that led to the discovery of what officials believe was an extramarital affair between petraeus and his biographer, paula broadwell. and of course so many questions about where this goes from here. joining me now for the latest on this developing story, the "washington post's" bob woodward and our own chief foreign affairs correspondent andrea mitchell who broke the story as i mentioned on friday. so andrea, here we are on sunday morning, new details. we know there was someone close to petraeus who got threatening e-mails. a whistleblower. she goes to the fbi. and that's how they get to the affair. >> this other woman, and we know she's not in the government and that she's not a family member, complained to the fbi about what she felt were harass k and threatening e-mails. it was that investigation that led -- they were anonymous e-mails. that led to broadwell's e-mail account. and by examining broadwell's, paula broadwell the biographer's e-mail account that's they uncovered or stumbled as they put it into this -- >> there were actual
and law enforcement, certainly the fbi to get the enormous amounts of fairly sensitive information about our private online activities, a lot of it without a court order. it looks like in this case it probably did get a warrant, but it also shows the incredible threat to them. we are talking about something that started as a cyber harassment investigation that led to the exposure of thousands of e-mails between broadwell and patreus over a period of years. we now have these archives of all of our communications, which compared to something like a wiretap can reveal vast more information. host: what is needed from a federal perspective to get access to the e-mails? guest: some courts have imposed tighter requirements. federal law says under certain circumstances it can be done with just a subpoena. they do not need to show probable cause of the search her home or tap your phone. only to certify that material that they are looking for is relevant. host: there is something called the electronic communications privacy act. guest: that is the 1986 federal law that provides the framework for c
sources and law enforcement officials that the fbi is now investigating, and this is an ongoing investigation into paula broadwell. she is someone who has had close access to general petraeus. she was his by fer and wrote a book on general petraeus called "all in." she's spent extensive time with him in afghanistan, has made numerous television appearances talking about general traits. says she's gone running with him. the fbi investigation is seeing whether she had improper access to the general -- to general petraeus's e-mails and may have had access to his -- may have accidentally or deliberately had access to classified information, and so we know this investigation is taking place and that it's identified paula broadwell, someone who has been close to david petraeus, which many people are saying could be an indication of the timing of all of this. >> okay. david ignatius, you're excellent at covering all this spy agencies. what's going on? >> well, i think richard mentioned the fbi investigation of paula broadwell. paula broadwell is general petraeus' biographer and somebod
of the homeland security committee has questions. >> it just doesn't add up that the f.b.i. would be carrying on this type of investigation without bringing it to the president or the highest levels of the white house. >> it doesn't seem to be partisan. senator dianne feinstein in charge of the senate intelligence committee is curious why she found out something like this from media irinquiries and because it could affect national security, pertinent lawmakers should have known in advance. a woman named jane kelly was being harassed by email and brought them into the f.b.i. office. they looked into the emails and found a relationship between broadwell and petraeus. no breach of national security, even though petraeus was advised to resign. we'll be back with more after the break. crazy monday. we'll see you on the other side. ♪ stay tuned for the answer.

that killed four americans the fbi is getting access to the seoul suspect in custody. he is currently being held in tunisia. he was arrested in the days after the attack but it wasn't until lindsay graham and company and the next guest put pressure on the authorities in tunisia. it didn't go to the crime scene the murder scene for a week. >> joining us right now is the senator. >> senator you got access. there is even some conditions on the access isn't there? >> the important thing is we do have access to the individual. there are individuals they are placed on interrogations by the host country. the thing is we face to face access for this guy. this started not long after i left you last week in new york. i went after the fbi in charge of this investigation. these very professional men and women who do a good job every single day investigating crimes were really frustrated. i could tell that because they were being asked to operate with one hand behind their back. we knew this guy was in custody yet nobody was doing anything to get the face to face interrogation with them. so it was a mat
leave since june for mental health issues. the fbi says he used campaign money to decorate his home. if jackson is forced to step down, a new election would have to be called. >>> stocks are slipping on wall street again one day after the pow posted the biggest one-day drop of the year. they say worries about europe's problems and the expected gridlock in washington are to blame. tyler matheson joins us. they're so many conspiracy theories about what happened yesterday, but wall street has done well as of late. how do we read into today and yesterday? >> today i think things are settling down a little bit compared with yesterday, tamron, and maybe just maybe it's because some of the noises that we're hearing from speaker boehner, from leader reid and even from the administration tend to suggest that maybe they will be able to get together on avoiding this disastrous fiscal cliff that looms on february 1. it's the expiration of the bush era tax cuts and imposition of automatic, across the board spending cuts that would take some $600 billion out of federal spending over the next deca
you. that's why the fbi investigated it and had to investigate it. i understand that. but just divorcing it from politics or anything else, to have it affect somebody's career career. >> in puritanism, as you suggest. but when you add in other factors and variables it's a shame that once again a great man is brought down by this. >> all of this broke today. who knew this and when? we keep talking about if he had run for president did he know this was on the surface? there was an e-mail investigation. maybe he already knew this could ruin a presidential nomination if this comes out. look at john edward. >> cenk: i want people to understand that there are reporters speculating that general petraeus might have given some of the information to the white house that might have been misleading about benghazi. that's why there might be speculation about his testimony at benghazi question about when did we know about the' fair and if they're related. >> there is a story within the story. jayar is right. the managing of this release this information as you say was probably anticipated a
to. >> mike barnicle, you are our crime correspondent. what's fbi director mueller saying this morning? this is, of course, the agent that began the cyber investigation that brought down general petraeus and is about to bring down the top general in afghanistan. he sent this picture to jill kelley who then decided to go to him later on to start a cyber investigation because a woman had sent her an e-mail that said nani, nani pooh-pooh. >> i think based on my knowledge of director mueller, he is probably looking at that picture and looking at the fact that that fbi agent cold called a republican congressman to report what was going on. >> just for the record, he sent this, he says, to doz dozens of people as a joke. >> that's supposed to make us feel better. >> i just said for the record. >> if anthony wiener had only come up with that excuse, he'd still be in congress right now. i tweeted that to all my followers. >> let's wait until all this cools off. they have the ongoing investigation, a month or two down the road. >> yeah. >> let's reassign this agent to, you know, an
of the timing of all of this? >> i don't see anything untoward about this. i think the fbi investigated as quickly as they could. i think as soon as they found something out, they talked to him. there was a bit of a delay in notifying the president. but that's something else altogether. you were asking about gen ben ghazi, do you want to talk benghazi? >> yeah. >> you've been on the ground. you know, you know what it's like to be on the ground when your intelligence is no good, i think from a military standpoint, i don't think it made any sense whatsoever to send a quick reaction force, which would neither be quick, nor would it necessarily be able to react to what was on the ground. by that time, anyway, ambassador stevens was dead. >> let's talk about from a personal standpoint. i know that you have known david petraeus and his wife, holly, for about the same length of time that they've known each other. tell me their story. >> david petraeus was a cadet at west point from '71-'75. i taught there from '73-'76. so we overlapped. holly petraeus, met him there. and why? because her fathe
been under investigation by the f.b.i. it is part of a broader investigation by the accountability review board set up at the president's direction by the secretary of state. no one is more interested in getting to the bottom of what happened than the president is. no one is more interested in bringing to justice those who took the lives of four americans than the president and he is very interested in having the results of those investigations vo provided to him and the american public. >> none of that is going to talk about the? >> the president has been forth right about when he found out about it that he directed actions be taken immediately to provide support for our embassy facilities not just in benghazi but in tripoli and around the world and every action he's taken was driven by -- >> there was a 5:00 meeting but what about after that? >> the president was made aware of developments throughout the evening and days ensuing so i'm not sure what you're question is. >> there were all [indiscernible] . >> when you talk about military we've been answering questions and we'll hav
one ounce of marijuana. it doesn't happen. anybody knows that the fed, the fbi, they are not doing street busts, corner bursts. this would have to go into effect by the distributors. so what's going to happen is they will try to set up distribution program then the federal government will take whatever actions they are going to take. but here's the rub. this is already going on in california with medical marijuana. there is no provision in the federal law for medical marijuana. they are allowing california and the state government to distribute medical marijuana. holder wrote a letter saying we'll strongly oppose this and prosecute this. they have done nothing. my answer to you, your honor is let's look at past behavior to predict future behavior. megyn: how can they do it? >> how can the feds do it? megyn: how can colorado thumb its nose? >> you are italian, you know. megyn: i think the thumb changes everything. you don't know what i'm trying to say. sorry. jonna, how can colorado pass a law like this when you have got a federal law that says pot is illegal? >> they are running a
reports that the fbi is reporting an investigation after hearing that a number of people heard letters from fannie mae that they were ineligible to vote. host: scott, good morning. caller: thank you for c-span. i did not watch c-span until i came across one of your programs during this election and i have been stopped since. i cannot stand to watch fox or msnbc. c-span appears to be one of the only channels that gives a fair and proportionate opinion, a chance for both parties to say their peace. i appreciate the opportunity for me to give mine. thomas jefferson called the electoral college and outdated form. i believe that every vote should count. on the other hand, you would not want texas, california, or new york to determine what the whole country should move forward on. i believe that the electoral college is outdated. i am an independent voter. i voted for clinton back in the day, and i have voted for bush. i voted for obama last time. i am from ohio, but not everyone from ohio is in the unions. there are a lot people out of work here. i am really upset with the fact that mitt ro
federal law to smoke marijuana, if i'm sitting on a park bench and i light up a joint, and an fbi agent walks by, federal enforcement official, will he arrest me? >> no. you know, even though he technically could, the federal government has never been interested in prosecuting low-level possession. even when i was u.s. attorney, i think we had 100-plant threshold. i suspect it's even higher now. i do think they are going to be concerned about -- you know, there's no residency requirements under this regime. so people can come into colorado and buy it. take it out of the state. and i'm just not sure how they're going to react to that. the governor, myself are going to be communicating with attorney general holder. the local u.s. attorney and it will be interesting to see what they say. because we in colorado really need to know that. people wanting to invest in these businesses need to know what the federal government's viewpoint is going to be. >> so you're going to have a rough couple months or maybe even a rough couple years? >> i suspect so. >> we wish you luck. and thank you so much
.i.a. or the fbi, one or the other deleted any reference to possible terrorist activity at the time because they didn't want to trigger or let people know that's what they were looking into but again she's not the one that wrote the talking points or edited the talking points. she also said at the time look, these may not prove to be true down the road but this is what we've got so far. >> that's right. my impression of this is yours which is that she read from prepared talking points and delivered messages that had been vetted and developed by the intelligence community in what was a chaotic and rapidly developing situation. it became clear fairly quickly that the attack on the benghazi consulate was a premeditated effort by terrorists. the president used the word terrorist actions the next day. and this isn't something -- this isn't iran-contra. this wasn't concealed for six months or a year. there wasn't complete disavow of any knowledge. this was the intelligence community saying we shouldn't be out there publicly in the fi
